Tottenham Hotspur finished sixth in the Premier League but there was still one part of their Europa League qualification to be worked out after the Premier League campaign ended.

Jose Mourinho's men's 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, coupled with Chelsea's 2-0 victory against Wolves saw Spurs leapfrog the latter into sixth spot.

Doing so made the ramifications for Tottenham much easier going forward as it was that seventh place spot that is the one in doubt for European qualification.

Seventh spot would have secured Europa League qualification, but only if Chelsea beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final - something they did not do.

That means Arsenal take the Europa League spot away from Wolves, who will now have to win this season's Europa League to be in Europe next season.

The FA Cup result also has an impact on Tottenham but in a different way.

Arsenal winning the competition means Spurs will start their Europa League journey in the second qualifying round, with a behind closed doors one-legged tie on September 17, with the Gunners going into the group stage.

The third qualifying round follows the following week on September 24 and then the play-offs come on another week later October 1. All the qualifying rounds contain one-legged matches.

There has also been some debate over what happens to Tottenham should Arsenal win the FA Cup and then Wolves win the Europa League, gaining themselves a spot in the Champions League, as England would then have eight teams in European competition - five in the Champions League and three in the Europa League.

However, the Premier League and UEFA have confirmed that eight Premier League clubs will be able to play in Europe next season.

So while Spurs would enter in the second qualifying stage, because of Arsenal winning the FA Cup, they would still have their spot in the competition as Wolves would be seen as an additional team as a title holder.
